My name is Isha Maini.
I'm a student in grade 10 and the founder of STEP, a social, educational initiative to broaden access to educational resources for low-income students regarding menstrual health and hygiene in a gender-sensitive and body-inclusive manner. Growing up, as I was exposed to the concept of menstrual health, I realized the extent to which menstruation is still a taboo in our society and manifests in the most subtle ways in our immediate surroundings. As a result of these taboos, many women and young girls lack the information and resources required to ensure safe and healthy periods every month, and girls living with economic hardship are in the most vulnerable category.
Just recently, STEP started a collaboration with Humari Pahchan NGO. One of their projects has greatly inspired me, and I have decided to lead it independently. The project's name is 'SUKHAD.' The aim of the project is to help underprivileged women spend their periods comfortably with proper means and information by providing them with menstrual resources.
We are also conducting distribution drives every week where 'Sukhad Kit' is distributed which includes pads, soap, paper envelopes for disposal, and other essential items.
हमारी पहचान बना रही है महिलाओ को सशक्त
Project sukhad is the need of the hour and we all need to unite for the cause.
WE ARE PLANNING TO DISTRIBUTE AROUND 50K SUKHAD KITS TO UNDERPRIVILEGED WOMEN throughout the year.
